    Question Needle problem with serato

    Hello outthere! I'm having an issue with my needles skipping song position when manipulating the vinyl for scratching in serato! Anyone else have this issue? Can it be Corrected? Ive seen videos of others using the same gear as me with no problems.

    Needles usually skip when turntables are uneven (on a slanted table etc) or calibration is off (height position, weight, anti skate).

    I have calibrated the tone arm and played with antiskate many times but Ill go ahead and do it again, do the decks have to be perfectly level or just approximately?

    with the right weight it shouldnt be skipping, is the vinyl scratched in anyway?

    Vinyl is new and I've tried it on all positions of the record.

    And in addition I have two sets of control vinyl and it does it on both.

    How old are your concords?
    And are you sure you have the tone arms/weights set right?

    what kind of slipmats are you using? How long have you been scratching?

    My needles are about 2 years old but barely used and my tone arm is level with the platter weight almost all the way forward and antiskate is balanced right in the middle, my slip mats are regular felt mats with a layer of wax paper between the platter and the slipmat, I'm just beginning to learn scratching.
